Climate Change

Volume 662: debated on Tuesday 18 June 2019

The House has declared a climate emergency, and we all recognise the necessity for swift and effective action. During my four years in the House, I have been a consistent advocate of Britain’s global leadership in tackling climate change. That is why the petitioners of Eddisbury

request that the House of Commons urges the Government to ensure that

the United Kingdom

hosts the upcoming COP 26 Climate Change Conference in 2020.

I am also presenting petitions in the same terms from the Newbury and Truro and Falmouth constituencies.

Following is the full text of the petition:

[The petition of residents of the constituency of Eddisbury,

Declares that climate change is a serious and pressing concern and needs urgent attention from the Governments of the world.

The petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urges the Government to ensure that London hosts the upcoming COP 26 Climate Change Conference in 2020.

And the petitioners remain, etc.]
